Historian Adam Selzer on H. H. Holmes and His Murder Castle: Separating Fact from Fiction


Keanu Reeves’ recent exit from the “The Devil in the White City” project has added to the long list of problems plaguing the upcoming Hulu miniseries based on serial killer H. H. Holmes. But what’s the true story behind Holmes, his killings, and the notorious Murder Castle

That’s the focus of this lively interview with Adam Selzer, Chicago historian, author of H. H. Holmes: The True History of the White City Devil, blogger, podcaster, and tour guide extraordinaire!

How many murders did Holmes actually commit, and what was his motivation? Is there any credence to the “Holmes Curse”? What behind-the-scenes insights does Adam share from his experience on the show “American Ripper”? And what was the Murder Castle really like?
